Pot for Elm

Post  Billy M. Rhodes on Sat Jul 03, 2010 8:42 pm

This is a spectacular tree. I will state up front that I am not a fan of glazed pots. In this case I would use an unglazed, oval pot at least two thirds to twice as large as the current pot by length and width. The depth would depend on the tree's root system but I wouldn't go any deeper that the current illustrated pot.

Traditionally in Bonsai the pot should not be more noticed than the tree. Personally, I think that a spectacular tree like that should have a simple pot. The bright green pot above would surely distract from the tree.

Depents on the size of the tree, a shohin decidious can be planted in a colourfull pot.

That light green pot may be too small but would support eye viewing new leaves on elm in spring. I disagree with using only "unglazed" pots with decid. trees. Part of beauty of fall color for beeches/maples/some flowering trees is the contrast in opposing colors. Check out Walter Pall blog on some of his trees and pot, also David DeGoot 'Basic Bonsai Design' Chapter 5. Statements to rule out glazed pots in general are are not about 'the tree first', as in Hamlet line"me think this lady doeth protest too much" Dustin Mann Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Consider a crescent or stone "whell" pot...

This tree is beautiful. It looks like it was growing on a cliff in the mountains; consider using a cresent pot. This would enhance that image. Salut, Todd ThumbsUp
